Welcome to the DogStar Books Online Store


In view of the rapidly increasing Covid-19 cases in our city and county, DogStar Books is discontinuing regular hours. For the immediate future we can accept appointments made over the phone or email for browsing limited to 15 minutes and in groups no larger than 2 persons.
I have spoken with customers who work on the Covid wards of our local hospitals. It is heart-breaking to hear. We really need to do all we can, together, to try and limit the destruction of life caused by this virus.
I look forward to the time, hopefully soon, when we can declare victory over this scourge and return to the theatre, the restaurant and the book shop. Let us commit to do all we can to help save lives. Mask up and be careful!

DogStar Books is located in a building that served for many decades as the home of the venerable Lancaster haberdashery, Fillings. The rambling layout and cherry woodwork provide a perfect setting for a large book store and gallery. In addition to books and art, DogStar features room for author events, children oriented readings and storytelling as well as spots to sit and relax while browsing.


DogStar Books is open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10-5 and with Sunday and Monday hours of  11-3. Outside of those hours you can browse and search our cataloged inventory here on the DogStar Books store page.


We only have a fraction of our total inventory catalogued and online. If you were unable to find the book you wanted, then please complete the form below and we will search our off-line inventory for you. If we don't have the book in our inventory, we can contact fellow booksellers to help locate the book for you.


We are experts in the book business and have been very successful in finding books for our customers; we would be pleased to conduct a book search for you.


Please complete as much of the form as possible. The more detail you provide, the more likely we will find the book you want.
